From Bedside to Business Value: A New Benchmark for Patient Engagement

For healthcare leaders, it’s time to rethink the business value of patients. It’s not just a function of what they consume in the system: It’s also what they can contribute!

The patient community is not a monolith! There’s a growing segment that’s hyper-connected and hyper-engaged and using every tool at their disposal to manage their care. Patient influencers are recognized by their peers as trusted thought leaders and, perhaps surprisingly to some, they can deliver real business value!

Hear from industry executives and some of the world’s leading patient influencers on why the time has come to build patient collaboration into the DNA of your organization. Leave with a new understanding of where opportunities are to engage with patient leaders, and how your organization can convert patient engagement into high-impact results.
